to train a horse well and properly, one must first grasp its essence.
Only those who are prepared with the utmost determination to meet horses with empathy, respect and devotion will motivate them to excellence and is able to achieve sustainable success.
The uncompromising horse-oriented education - also in view of the long-term health of the animal - are one of the foundations of my training philosophy.
Only happy, healthy and content horses are cooperative and willing!
This is my claim, and the quintessence of many years as a successful competition rider and trainer.
Granted: It's a long way, but it is worth going it. Read below what I was able to achieve with my philosophy.
